Interview: Hoyt And Suzy Tidwell

Hoyt & Suzy Tidwell Have A New Cookbook And Discuss The Importance of Families Having Dinner at the Table

Pastor Ed interviews Hoyt and Suzy Tidwell and they discuss several topics including Hoyt’s new cookbook and the importance of having the family eating together at the dinner table.

https://anchor.fm/ed-boston-podcast-network/episodes/Hoyt–Suzy-Tidwell-Have-A-New-Cookbook-And-Discuss-The-Importance-of-Families-Having-Dinner-at-the-Table-e4be1j

In late 2017, Suzy Tidwell taped her husband, Hoyt, making his chicken and dumplings in his trademark overalls and posted it on Facebook. There were no expectations for the 28-minute video, which quickly went viral. To date, 71 year-old Hoyt Tidwell’s chicken and dumplings video  has been viewed over 5 MILLION times on Facebook alone. Hoyt and Suzy started posting additional recipe videos, and before long, an unlikely celebrity was born. From their home kitchen south of Nashville, Tennessee, Hoyt and Suzy now post a weekly video offering viewers some country cookin’ and a dose of inspiration.

Hoyt Tidwell

The videos have developed an international fanbase, with over 20 million views to date. The videos typically feature Suzy behind the camera, admonishing Hoyt if he doesn’t wash his hands, and instructing him to get a bigger bowl because he just can’t seem to make small batches of anything. Much like his old-fashioned southern recipes, Hoyt’s videos themselves are comfort food, reminding us of a simpler time and the magic that can be found around the family dinner table.

Hoyt and Suzy (who once “won big” on the Newlywed Game) just celebrated their 50th anniversary. If you ask the happy couple about their long term goals, they are quick to point out that Hoyt’s Kitchen isn’t about cookbooks or view counts… but about bringing people together.

New this month… Hoyt’s Kitchen, Volume 2: Favorite Recipes from Hoyt, Family & Friends (The Cookbook Specialists). The all-new collection of recipes follows 2018’s Hoyt’s Kitchen: Favorite Recipes from Hoyt and Family. Both books are available now at HoytsKitchen.com.

Huge News About Friend of the Podcast Michael Behenna

It’s been a long, long time coming but today, President Trump gave an Executive Grant of Clemency for friend of the podcast, Michael Behanna. I, along with numerous other members of the then called “Cyber Crew” worked hard to defend Michael from nearly the very beginning of this horrible ordeal to a true Military Hero.

A trip to DC in support of Micheal, walking the halls of the Congressional Office Building to speak with Congressmen and their staffs about the grave injustices that were placed on our friend, having Michael’s parents on the podcast more than once to keep us updated (once Michael himself got on the line to thank us for our support), and regular prayers are some of the things we’ve done on behalf of this amazing former Military Officer.  We once had former Congressman and retired LTC Allen West on the podcast just to talk about Michael.

This grant of clemency serves as a complete pardon for Michael. While he can never get back the years of pain and suffering he has endured because of this disgrace of a miscarriage of justice, I am so pleased that he can now have this part of his life behind him.

May God’s blessing always be with Michael, Vicki, Scott along with the rest of the family, friends, and fellow soldiers that were so affected by this ordeal.

Pastor Ed Boston

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Clemency for Michael Behenna

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for former Army First Lieutenant Michael Behenna of Oklahoma.

In 2009, a military court sentenced Mr. Behenna to 25 years in prison for unpremeditated murder in a combat zone. After judgment, however, the U.S. Army’s highest appellate court noted concern about how the trial court had handled Mr. Behenna’s claim of self-defense. Additionally, the Army Clemency and Parole Board reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him as soon as he was eligible in 2014—just 5 years into his sentence. Upon his release, dozens of Patriot Guard motorcycle riders met Mr. Behenna to escort him back to his home in Oklahoma.

Mr. Behenna’s case has attracted broad support from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public. Thirty-seven generals and admirals, along with a former Inspector General of the Department of Defense, signed a brief in support of Mr. Behenna’s self-defense claim. Numerous members of the Oklahoma congressional delegation, Oklahoma’s then-Governor Mary Fallin, and current Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter have also expressed support for Mr. Behenna. Further, while serving his sentence, Mr. Behenna was a model prisoner. In light of these facts, Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency.
